A couple weeks ago I took the kids to a gorgeous location for some impromptu shots. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as expected (hint… camera shutter broke, ran out of sunlight etc). As we were walking back to the car, Madison so proudly noted that she had wonderful behavior and that she was looking forward to getting photos taken. “Seriously?” I said out loud….Um, I’ve got to take advantage of this. So, I told her to sit right down and let me take a few. She obliged.
It kills me to think I’m on the verge of losing the “little girl” that’s been a part of my life for 11 years and 9 months. I’m honestly not ready to move on to Junior High and all that it entails. Right now I want to enjoy her innocence, imaginative play and faithful spirit because all too soon it may fade and slowly be replaced by a new era in her life.
